Award-winning reggae/dancehall artist Livingstone Etse Satekla, known as Stonebwoy, recently praised the Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA), asserting that the event is on the same level as prestigious international awards like the Grammys and BET.

Stonebwoy, who recently received the TGMA Artiste of the Year award, highlighted the importance of recognizing local achievements.

In an interview with Berla Mundi on TV3, Stonebwoy shared his views on the TGMA’s role in supporting Ghanaian artists.

“I am truly appreciative. No one could even notice that night. I had to take my medication during the event. The truth is, I hold a great deal of respect for the Ghana Music Awards, and it is evident in the effort I put into it because that is the Ghana Music Awards,” he said.

The “Therapy” hitmaker added that while he aspires to win international awards like the Grammys and BET, local award shows also deserve appreciation and support. He noted that just as the TGMA is crucial in Ghana, these global awards are significant in their respective countries.

“As much as we strive to transcend our national boundaries and reach the Grammys or the Latin Awards or the BETs, we must recognize that those awards are local to Americans. Therefore, it is crucial to cultivate our own local awards. Without the Ghana Music Awards, what would we have? I wouldn’t want to be left out. Even on days when I wasn’t performing, like last year, I attended and presented an award. I truly value it,” he expressed.
